  Original Published: 7/22/2013  Scientists in Ohio are working to save an endangered species of rhinoceros, by breeding siblings.   Six-year-old "Hara-pan" is one of three Sumatran rhinos successfully born at the Cincinnati Zoo.    Scientists plan to breed Harap-an with his older sister, nine-year-old "Suci."   Officials say the plan isn't ideal, but it's a necessary move to save the species.   There are less than 100 Sumatran rhinos left on earth and the only two on this continent are Hara-pan and Suci.
